Still in the drawer! I remember now it crashed on me whilst writing up a World Cup Group A preview so I'm blaming Jersey Kopite for all this.

Resetting an old Windows machine to factory can be worse than installing Ubuntu.

Done one at the two weekends and the damned thing simply refused to download updates (56 hours and much hair pulling later) eventually 'solved' the problem by upgrading it to Windows 10 (by burning a Windows 10 DVD and doing an upgrade that way - the online wouldn't download no matter what I did).

Depending on the age of the thing, the battery could be shot too - that can also lead to strange issues that result in freezing.  Try removing it and run on mains power only.

Someone who has openly suggested they aren't confident with a computer is hardly going to rebuild the machine or install Ubuntu...

Chrome seems to be your biggest concern at the moment. Chrome should automatically install Flash updates, so you won't need to manually install anything. You can see if your Chrome can be updated, which it probably can if you haven't used it in over a year. Open Chrome > Menu (looks like a burger!) > Settings > About and from there you can see if it can be updated - chances are it will update itself.

When you start it up/shut it down are you getting any update/configuring messages? I would agree with whoever said above that your machine is probably way behind on updates. In the evening, go to Control Panel > Windows Update > Check for Updates... This will probably take a while but come back to it after 30-45 minutes and see what it has found. You can let it update and leave it to run through the night.

However, if you have done this and it appears to get 'stuck' then you may want to try installing them in smaller batches i.e. when it searches for updates and shows available updates, you can tick/untick what you want it to install. Might be best to try it in smaller batches. One of my users had this issue a few weeks back, and it was one update amongst 68 that was killing the machine and preventing it from updating. I just did it in smaller batches to try and narrow down the fucker. I would normally wipe and rebuild to be honest but it was his home computer, not his work computer, and he stuff on there he needed, so I played the long game. Took about 4/5 hours as they machine was dreadfully slow but the updates were preventing him from accessing the internet and doing anything, really. 4/5 hours but I only had to do something for a few minutes every half hour or so.


The idiot returns!...

(Titi despite following your steps, Internet Explorer refuses to open)...

Tried to update Chrome as instructed above. Tells me that updates are disabled by the administrator (this is me but doesn't seem to give me an option to enable updates).

Also followed the steps to search for updates but it told me that everything is up to date.

Start Windows 7 in Safe Mode with Networking
1. Immediately after the computer is powered on or restarted (usually after you hear your computer beep), tap the F8 key in 1 second intervals.
2. After your computer displays hardware information and runs a memory test, the Advanced Boot Options menu will appear.
3. Use the arrow keys to select Safe Mode with Networking and press ENTER.

Then retry the steps I gave earlier :wave

Again the offer to fix it for free is still there as long as Knickerless photos are on said lappie ;D :wave

Re: Chrome Updates... it's risky (you'll be editing the Windows Registry but it's safe if you follow the path exactly!)

Here are step by step instructions:
1. Save these instructions somewhere safe and close all instances of Chrome
2. Press the Windows key + R, type regedit.exe and press Enter
3. Navigate to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Policies\Google\
4. Double-click on UpdateDefault or DefaultUpdate
5. Change the data type 0 to 1
6. Exit the registry editor and launch Chrome

Disclaimer: These instructions involve modifying your Windows registry. If you're uncomfortable or unfamiliar with editing your registry, you may want to consult a computer technician before you start. You may also want to consider backing up your registry before proceeding.

Got a pretty good laptop spec wise which keeps failing on me. Charger has stopped working twice, I can't actually remember the issue exactly now but something inside the lapotp broke where it kept switching off about 6 months ago so I went into a shop and got that fixed but now the screen is fucked. It kept 'tittering' a few weeks back but now its literally just bright coloured lights flashing everywhere almost as if someones smashed it but its perfectly intact.

I'm going to try get it fixed but if not what would be a good laptop to buy for about £250?

I only need it for...
- Web browsing
- Streaming the occasional match
- iTunes and just storing pictures/music
- Downloading films from uTorrent
- Skype

I won't be playing games on it I just need something that will be reasonably quick which I can use when im home from work to mess around on. I haven't bought a laptop in about 4 years so no idea what the ideal processors and all that are these days. Recommendations would be appreciated :)

Is it not just as simple as getting a memory stick, bunging it in the USB port, finding the location of the game on your hard drive and copying it to the memory stick? he then just transfers it from the stick to the same location on his hard drive that you located it in on yours.

You can buy a transfer cable, but I never had any joy before with one, although I need one today as I have an all in one arriving (big screen with hard drive behind it) to replace my laptop. Got six years of good service from a top end HP pavilion, but it did cost £1100 back then. The new thing is a refurb with 8gig ram and 1 terabyte, auction win for £126.

Is there an easyish inexpensive way to fix pressure marks on a laptop LCD screen? Been looking everywhere but the general consensus is either replace the screen or live with it, maybe someone in here has a more suitable solution.

Anything with a Core i3 and above will be fine for Photoshop, provided you have at least 8 GB RAM.  For really really heavy stuff you may want an i5 with a dedicated gpu. But for normal stuff, even a Core M3 6th Gen will be fine.

Specifically

CPU/Motherboard - Something based on a 6th/7th gen Intel 'i' or 'm' series. Do NOT go for Pentium or Celeron branded CPUs. They suck for anything heavier than web browsing and minecraft. With or without a dedicated GPU - ok either way (provided your niece is not a hardcore gamer or something!)

RAM: AT LEAST 4 GB, recommended 8 to 16GBS.

Harddrive - Solid State makes a HUGE difference to general performance. People underestimate just how important storage can be in day to day operations. An i3 with an SSD will kick the ass of an i7 with a mechanical drive, easy. Boot times will be MUCH faster as well.  This is one area where I never compromise.  However, SSD equipped machines are usually on the expensive side and have smaller capacities, so if you have budgetary constraints, they might not work for you.

Display - As an art student, color accuracy and gamut is very important i would assume, so go for an IPS monitor with AT LEAST 1080p resolution.  Avoid TN displays like plague.

Rest of the specs are not that important(battery perhaps) so you can look around and pick one that suits your budget and requirements.

Agreed with the RAM. Personally I'd say min 8GB, as tend to find that's the first thing to (majorly) slow things down if got 4 or below.

I'd argue that for an art student looking to do work in Photoshop, possibly expand into other visual design software - a quality screen is very important, possibly more important then bare processor and RAM specs.
Macbook is the simplest solution. DELL XPS series is great as well.

That's an ideal, though. The thing is, his niece will have access to uni computer labs that will likely have top spec Pros to use, we did, so me using my (still rather expensive but it was in 2003!) basic machine at home wasn't too much of a big deal.

I work with a fair few graphical interfaces in my astro course so THIS has been fine for the level I operate at.  For an art student looking to use PS and I'm guessing video editing stuff later on you're looking at something at least with that processor but an excellent dedicated graphics card.  To be honest if she has the room I'd look to get a desktop computer or be reliant on the uni computers.  I'm in a uni computer room writing this and the system I have has an i7-6700 processor in with 16GB of RAM.  That would be the ideal specs.

out of curiosity, what are peoples experiences with Acer laptops? I have an Acer for almost 7 years and the only issue ive had with it really was occasional noise distortion from the speakers which updates seemed to fix and a tag stuck in the fan causing it to overheat.

Also with HP. nearly every HP i have come across has had issues. mainly overheating.
